| about me…|
I am… a woman, navy wife, navy brat, and mother of 2 funny kids, a former teacher, SAHM, lover of laughter, books, and all things musical. I rely on sarcasm, humor and prayer to cope with the military lifestyle and maintain my own identity. I have almost 40 years of experience with Navy way of life...20+ years were spent as a Navy brat and the past 17 have been spent as a Navy spouse. And yes...I did swear I would never marry anybody in the military, but what can I say? I absolutely adore him. We have been through a lot together…good and bad, and I truly could not imagine spending my life with anyone else.
My daughter is a typical teenager who loves calling out injustices, and my little man is a complete master of chaos who can melt your heart in a second. It can get quite interesting around here and sometimes downright chaotic...what with hubby's work/travel schedule, moves, the little man's food allergies, my dysautonomia, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, autoimmune stuff... specialist appointments, and the usual hodgepodge of events.
Nothing to do but put one foot in front of the other, press on, and pray.

What you will find, if you stick around, is me just being honestly me. I try to read my friends list entries daily, and like to take the time to get to know each person on my list. Feel free to express yourself in response to my posts. I am trusting that if you don't have something nice to say, you just won't say it in the first place. Just be careful if you add yourself to my friends list...you may end up in my novel.
Anyhow, this is my life. Here is my take on it all...
"I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry." Unknown
